"The Art of War is among the greatest classics of military literature ever written. Sun Tzu warfare is as applicable today as when the book was written some 2,500 years ago....Pick up The Art of War and read it."--General A.M. Gray, Marine Corps Gazette
"As a reflection of the Chinese mind, this little work is as relevant as any Confucian classic."--The Times (London)
"Westerners have dozens of books to choose from if they want to learn about Japanese philosophy and military tactics....But when the Japanese, especially those in business, want information on the subject, many turn to an ancient Chinese, not Japanese, military manual, The Art of War....Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports
"Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports
"A brief tract on strategy that has been admired in China for centuries. Some of Mao Tse Tung's most eloquent thoughts are merely rehashes of Sun Tzu and his interpreters."--The Los Angeles Herald Examiner
"Samuel Griffith's original and scholarly translation of The Art of War shows how good scholarship can make an easily readable translation that is much more useful to modern readers." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

I am very impressed with the quality of the cover and binding, a luxurious feel and presentation. I have personally owned various editions, both in English and Chinese (simplified, long form, and classical grass writing), with and without the myriad of commentaries, and the texts usually had been so densely printed that is at times very hard on the eyes.
This edition does away with the following generations of addendum, keeping the matter close to the original interpretations in a clear, well formatted page and faithful English translations. In fact, when I quizzed him a few days later on a few aspects of Sun Zu's thought, this teen, who couldn't otherwise stand reading a paragraph, responded accurately and with comprehension.
That alone is worth 5 stars.
